What would happen if two, three, four, half a dozen KKK members were caught over a period years burning crosses on black citizens lawns or supporting the cross burners? And then it was discovered that all these “unrelated” Klan members attended the same Christian church.
And what would then happen if authorities discovered that the Christian church was just a front for KKK racial terrorism and the church had been radicalizing individuals? What would the FBI do? What would Homeland Security do? What would the President order authorities to do?
Most likely, shut down the Christian church pending further investigation – seizing all records, computers and correspondence.
And how many politicians would object to its closure, however temporary? How many news outlets would object to the action and report on it?
How many would be outraged and demand something be done if the pastor of this Christian church called for a “purified” whites only state?
Well, the answer should be obvious. No politician, or very few, would object to the closure and vigorous investigation of this church. Every mainstream media outlet would burning up the airwaves with wall-to-wall coverage. Every reporter would be busy digging up information on the church and every attendee for the last 20 years.
Well, there is no such case, no such “Christian” church and no KKK connection. However, there is such a “Church” here in the United States that’s had more than its fair share of radicals.
It’s the Cambridge Mosque, run by the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB). The Mosque and the ISB have both been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
As you may recall, the Cambridge Mosque was attended by the Boston bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers as well as their radical Islamist mother. Now it turns out that the Oklahoma beheader and Muslim convert, Alton Alexander Nolen, had ties to the Cambridge Mosque through the Oklahoma Mosque.
The Mosques leaders have long-standing links to radical Islam and terrorism. In 2009 the FBI had been warned that the ISB was a nest of Islamic radicalism. It’s no surprise that several American jihadists who left the United States to join ISIS came from the Boston area.
One of the Mosques founders and its first president, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, was convicted in 2004 of terrorism and is serving a 23 year sentence, yet he was allowed, during the Clinton administration, to select the Muslim chaplains for the Army.
At a rally in 2000, Alamoudi was filmed declaring his support of Hamas and Hezbollah.
Current ISB Mosque executive board member, Anwar Kazmi, was filmed supporting Islamic terrorist Terek Mehanna, who was convicted for material support of Al Qaeda.
Charles Jacobs of the Jewish Advocate reported that Suhaib Webb, the current Imam at the Cambridge Mosque, “teaches vicious hatred and calls for young Muslims to engage in jihad against non-Muslims in order to establish a global Islamic state”, and that Imam Webb was caught on video at a CAIR fundraiser calling for an Islamic state.
Another famous, or infamous Cambridge Mosque attendee was, “Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT educated, Pakistani neuroscientist serving 86 years in federal prison, and has been dubbed ‘Lady Al Qaeda’”, reports CNN. “She has become the poster girl for Islamic Jihad. ISIS militants who beheaded American journalist James Foley sent a letter to the family saying it had offered a prisoner exchange naming Dr. Siddiqui.”
Oh, and her husband is the nephew of 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
After the Boston bombing, the Cambridge Mosque sent out an e-mail to all its members, not to cooperate with authorities, but if contacted by the FBI, to call the ACLU.
So it’s patently obvious that this mosque is a hotbed of radical Islamic teaching and activity. And we all know that if this mosque were instead the “Cambridge Christian Church”, or the “Cambridge Synagogue”, it would be shuttered faster than you could say Allahu Akbar.
But here it is, still standing, open for “business” with not a hint of closure or even investigation.
Ain’t political correctness grand!
